To who may need to know
that's her on da flow
sliding down the pole
horny but fo sho
both our hands were up
drinks was in the cup
she showed me some love
so we left the club
Now we up in the Hummer V
She’s so hot she’s kissing on me
this is the girl of my fantasy
after the remix we were doing our thing

CHORUS
I got her singing
Thoia thoia thoia thoia thoing thoing
Thoia thoia thoia thoia thoing
She had me singing
Thoia thoia thoia thoia thoing thoing
Thoia thoia thoia thoia thoing (repeat)

 


on da flow dancing (flow usually refers to poetry or rapping. Here', it's "poetry in motion." An alternative interpretation could be simply the pronunciation of "on the floor")
the pole a stripper's pole
horny sexually excited fo sho certainly (for sure)




Hummer V expensive military style vehicle popular with rappers
hot sexy

remix different version of the song

Now I dont know about you
but I would like to get with you
dice hunnies while I'm chillin' by the pool
red bikinis and some up heel shoes
who could think of any damn thing cooler
we at my crib so it ain’t no rules
I’m butt naked, sweat socks, and hot shoes
100 bottles of Cris in the cooler
I’m frozen thanks to Jacob the Jeweler
one day without me and she’s shaking like a fiend
y’all tell me whats R&B without the R

CHORUS

 


get with you be intimate with you
dice hunnies attractive women chillin' relaxing
up heel shoes high heel shoes
damn used for emphasis cooler better
crib house it ain’t no rules there aren't any rules
butt naked completely nude sweat socks white athletic socks hot fashionable
Cris Cristal (expensive champagne favored by rappers)
frozen wearing many diamonds (ice = diamonds in slang) Jacob the Jeweler New York jeweler Jacob Arabo
shaking like a fiend in withdrawal like an addict without drugs
y’all you R&B Rhythm and Blues music R R. Kelly

I met a girl in the shopping mall
she had hazel eyes said she’s from Africa
she broke it down right in front of me
rolling on her knees I said I’m scared of ya
tattoo on her back loving the way she work it
body moving like she’s dancing in the circus
back forth up down when jerk it
put the thoia thoia thoing on and watch her murder it

CHORUS

We make a lot of noise
we rolling through the club
all of the ladies in the house
come show ya boy some love
last call for alcohol
we're closing down the bar
tell me where’s the after party at
we rolling with the R

CHORUS

 



broke it down was dancing (break it down, like work it (below), obviously has a sexual meaning as well)
ya you
work it have sex/dance


 


rolling moving

ya boy your boyfriend


after party late night party
